Turns out we’re not the only Manhattan university looking to expand.  According to Washington Square News, NYU has proposed adding 6 million square feet to its campus, and is looking outside the Village for about half of that space.  The current candidate neighborhoods are Midtown, Northwestern Brooklyn, and, most intriguingly, Governor’s Island, the perpetually-redesigned, super-historical former military base on the banks of the charmingly-named Buttermilk Channel.  No word yet on who NYU’s plans will be displacing.
